Sunday evening Supermoon Viewing in Maryland

 

Maryland residents will have the opportunity to view the December supermoon on Sunday evening. Watch for it as the moon rises at about 5:13 p.m.

 

A supermoon doesn't happen every month – the ones in May, September, and November are the most well-known. Each one has at least one special name. The May moon is also known as the Flower Moon, September's is called the Harvest Moon, and December's has several names including the Full Cold Moon, the Beaver Moon, and the Hunter's Moon.

It's called a supermoon because the moon, which doesn't have a perfectly circular orbit, gets closer to the Earth, sometimes more than 30,000 miles closer. As a result, it appears 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter.

Roy Kelley - I've been keeping my eye on the moon these past few days and thought it was pretty incredible but didn't know about the Super Moon. 

I can always count on you for timely information. Thanks!

We get only a few times a year that the moon comes as close to earth as tonight.  It's a great opportunity for shutterbugs to get out there and try their luck at getting a great shot.

I did not attempt to photograph the supermoon. There are plenty of photographs on the internet.

Hi Roy!  I certainly remember my Mom and her Harvest Moon Cake and also how we would all sing the following:

  1. Shine on, shine on harvest moon, up in the sky-why
    I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June or July
    Snowtime ain't no ti-ime to stay outdoors and spoon
    So shine on, shine on harve-e-est moon

I am not familiar with a Harvest Moon Cake. You need to post the recipe.

 

This is the Pillsbury recipe for a Harvest Moon Cake.
